Trend: Boozy Coffee | Happy Hour Guide | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Trend: Boozy Coffee

Saturday morning gets better with the addition of a shot—or two—to that cup of joe

Bend has a wide array of boozy coffee offerings. Boneyard Beer makes an adult coffee slushie with Irish Cream and local Coffee 4 Kids cold brew. The Oaxacan Speedball from Dogwood Cocktail Cabin is made with mezcal, creme de cocoa, amarula, cold pressed coffee and crushed ice. Not a big mezcal fan, I was surprised by how complex and delicious the drink was. Next, the Grand Coffee at Currents at the Riverhouse, a classic combination of house-brewed hot coffee, Baileys, Kahlua and Grand Marnier, and topped with whipped cream and candied orange. Meanwhile, all of Riff Cold Brew’s cocktails are made with cold brew coffee concentrate for an extra kick, even the Bloody Joe and El Jefe (their take on a Bloody Mary and margarita, respectively). Lemon Tree has an incredible Hazelnut Espresso Martini, and while not technically coffee, the Captain Chai Latte at Cafe Sintra (made with Captain Morgan and homemade chai) is guaranteed to get the morning started.
